The Charity


I’m proud to be supporting these great Charities with my 250-mile challenge which aims to raise vital funds and awareness.

Alzheimer’s Research UK

Alzheimer’s Research UK and the fight against dementia. This is a charity that works tirelessly leading dementia research, dedicated to causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. The charity was founded in 1992 with their pioneering work bringing us closer to a future without the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.

The Feed

The Feed is a not-for-profit social enterprise and charity providing catering services.

Our social purpose is to prevent poverty, hunger and homelessness in Norwich.

Holt Youth Project

One of England’s most imaginative youth schemes and an award-winning project.

Hallswood Animal Sanctuary

Hallswood’s mission is to rescue, support, and advocate for wildlife, and in special cases domestic animals, through rehabilitation, education, and community outreach.

Priory Paddocks Nursing Home

At Priory Paddocks Nursing Home, their aim is to provide all the necessary care and attention for those who wish to spend their retirement in a secure and caring atmosphere, whilst respecting their privacy and maintaining their independence and dignity as far as possible.

I encourage everyone to donate what they can and help support the work of Alzheimer’s Research UK plus also supporting Holt Youth Project, Hallswood Animal Sanctuary, The Feed and Priory Paddocks Nursing Home. Every contribution makes a difference. Together we can make a real difference!

 No matter how small or large, every donation and every kind gesture is helping Craig reach his goal of raising money and awareness.

Thank you for being a part of this amazing journey. Together, we can make a difference!
